That's better a little less is more

Not very Inky but something to keep the hands occupied while watching Mr. H drive very nice circuits to win his race very tidily.  Unfortunately his car forced Mr B to retire again.

So while all this interesting action was being played out on the TV I sat watching it with some paper scissors glue and buttons.  

The theme this week at Less is More, is Button or Ribbon, or plurals thereof.   The great expanse of space is red not white.   Running down the left side three strips of Brown velvet ribbon.  Stuck on top of the middle ribbon paper print of buttons, cut out so just the buttons are included.   On top of this and the other strips of ribbon real buttons all of which are cream/off white.   A couple more buttons strayed onto the great red expanse and a little Organza ribbon bow tops the card.   As always will have to wait now to see what Chrissie and Mandi make of it.

The colour combination Red and Brown is rather a good one and is the subject of a new to me challenge Annabelle Stamps where the colour theme is Red, Chocolate and Cream.

Feeling better now so guess the evening is mine, and it could be inky!
